The sixth book of the Doom Star series, and potentially the last, is Star Fortress. As soon as I saw it, I grabbed it and eagerly started reading. I was curious what would become of Marteen Kluge after the Planet Wreckers were stopped, and would Social Unity prevail over the Highborn? Are the cyborgs still attacking?
This book is action packed from start to finish. We find humanity and the Highborn taking a collective breath after the planet wreckers were stopped. As the Highborn bicker, Hawthorne has a truce with them, and the begin planning to attack the Neptune system.
Marteen is trapped on Earth, and concerned as Hawthorne agrees to meet with the Grand Admiral. That doesn’t go as planned for the Highborn, who believe both leaders killed. Meanwhile Hawthorne secretly joins the fleet that heads out into the solar system, with 3 Doom Stars. Marteen manages to escape from Social Unity, with infighting occurring, and moves to get to his shuttle and make his way to Mercury, where he suspects the Highborn have a new weapon.
The book jumps between the cyborgs, the fleet heading to Neptune (human and Highborn) and Kluge’s journey. It’s an exciting one and I don’t want to give anything away, but there is an amazing battle with the Prime Web mind of the cyborgs. Read the other books first, and you’ll love this one.
